Again, being specific (without shipping on the Union Pacific :-D), those cars are Shasta Daylight, which means they had larger windows so passengers had an unobstructed view of Mt. Shasta and other scenery along their trip. Back when SP owned them, that is.

More specifically, it’s south Scotia. Those trees were planted by Pacific Lumber when I was two or three, and that road through said trees leads you to the location of three ex SP Daylight coaches. That road is a company access road which runs into other access roads. I think it's ironic that these trees were planted for PL's future, and they outlasted the company which planted them! Sad, but that’s what happens when a company gets hostilely taken over and then dismantled, bit by bit.
